Summit Mountain Weddings on Instagram

Thanks for checking out today's post, A Collection from our Instagram Feed: @breckweddings, which contains a mix of my images and images from professional photographers who have submitted weddings via Two Bright Lights or have tagged us in their posts. Are you on Instagram? Please go and check us out there because we post there almost daily, whereas our blogs are about once a week or so. I'm working on putting in more frequent posts about stuff around Breck, so stay tuned for those throughout the summer.

Breckenridge, Colorado Wedding Blog

I captured the image above at one of the many mountain weddings in Breckenridge, and it especially caught my eye because of the skier and snowboarder aspect. Some of our significant others choose the other way to slide down the mountain. That's ok. Diversity is good. And, you could always ask your spousal unit to switch it up and go skiing with you, or vice versa. As you move into married life, you'll quickly realize that compromise is a big part of the relationship. Please contact us to learn how we can help you plan a destination wedding in the Colorado Rockies, and probably end up sharing your pics on Instagram.

Cannabis and Colorado Mountain Weddings

Marijuana is legal in Colorado now, and I asked Colorado Cannabis Florist, Buds 'n Blossoms, a few questions in today's post, Peonies + Pot: Florist Uses Marijuana for Colorado Mountain Weddings. There's a time and a place for everything, so as long as you have your bases covered and have done your homework, there's an opportunity for guests and visitors to try and enjoy recreational marijuana. You can even visit a few different shops on your own, or ask us how we can set up a tour of breweries, restaurants, and cannabis dispensaries. You can't smoke in public and definitely not behind the wheel. Just like drinking, you need a sober driver at all times. Ask us how we can set up a shuttle and take care of that for you.

Floral Designs and Decor. That you can smoke later.

Floral designs are now being infused with cannabis and brides and grooms that enjoy the lifestyle might want to share some of these unusual elements with their guests that evening. I would say that that's a double whammy of being green, by recycling the decor for consumption and by supporting local Colorado ganjapreneurs. And one facet of the marijuana industry is the slowly emerging evidence and trends of how couples will enjoy cannabis on their day. Buds 'n Blossoms were excited about recent designs that "even had a bowl tied on one side, a lighter and rolling papers tied to the other side, a cannabis jar and cannabis included in the mini arrangements."

Question: How many cannabis weddings are you doing this summer?

- this is the first season of booking weddings and so far have at least 3 on the books for this summer

- I have done many holiday parties, MJ Investors meetings arrangements, bridal expos and private party arrangements

- we are still fighting the stigma and working with more venues to get them on board

Question: What should brides and grooms know about Cannabis and weddings?

- that they are legally protected under amendment 64

- there are so many ways to incorporate cannabis into their wedding or special event without the smell or clouds of smoke, there are many fun and discrete options as well!

- choosing the right venue opens all the doors to their true cannabis wedding experience

DSC_0706

Question: What would say are the upcoming trends?

- I think that it will become more and more popular especially as it becomes more widely accepted

- some weddings are not having alcohol at their weddings, only cannabis

- keeping the scene under control thru moderation, similar to drink ticket idea, allowing guests to indulge without misusing or abusing cannabis

- cannabis themed weddings seem to be on a smaller scale than the traditional weddings. After all, cannabis is a little more costly than alcohol, but beautifully it takes less to get the job done

Carrie + Mike: Alpenglow Stube Wedding at the Keystone Ski Resort

Keystone Resort Wedding

The wedding day starts off with a gondola ride so folks can be there for Carrie + Mike: Alpenglow Stube Wedding at the Keystone Ski Resort, images courtesy of Black Forest Photography. Once at the top of the mountain, the guests walk to the Keytop Overlook, for an outside ceremony with views of Mt. Baldy, Mt. Guyot, the Breckenridge Ski Resort, the Ten Mile Range and the Continental Divide. Guests may need supplemental oxygen at this point, because if the dramatic mountain ceremony doesn't take their breath away, the lack of oxygen at 11,000 feet just might. Just kidding! Actually, acute altitude sickness is a real thing. Please seek help immediately if someone in your party is experiencing difficulties breathing or doesn't feel right. Health and safety is priority #1.

Alpenglow Stube Reception Dinner

After dinner, and probably before, the guests might be consuming alcohol. I recommend matching one glass of water for every glass of wine, beer, or shot you consume. That, and some good food, and you're ready to party all night. The chefs at the Alpenglow Stube put on a tremendous dinner experience, and a nice touch to end the evening is to send guests home with a blanket, LED glow stick of some kind, as the gondolas are not illuminated. Most cell phones have lights too, so that's always an option.

Thanks for reading, and please contact us if you need help and aren't sure if a planner is needed (if you do, we know the best ones), as some couples just know what they want and don't need a lot of fuss. That's where we come in.

ALBUM STORY

Keystone has a very special meaning to Carrie and Mike so they chose it to say their vows. It was a very special family affair with their children as their wedding party. Many tears of joy were shed. What a magnificent setting for a wonderful couple.

The Ice Castles are a unique winter creation that comes to Colorado nearly every year. This year's castle was built in Breckenridge. The idea for this styled shoot was to create a warm and cozy vibe among the sparkle and ice of the Ice Castles. To achieve this feeling, we paired a sparkly Maggie Sottero ball gown with cozy sweaters, mittens, and scarves. The Painted Primrose provided the fabulous bouquet and the Bridal Collection in Denver provided the dress and accessories. MENTE did the hair and make-up. Our beautiful couple actually got married the following week so the two hours we spent in the Ice Castles were a great warm up for their own wedding. The backdrop of the castles was perfect for the winter wedding feel we were going for.

Sallie Barber Mine: Cross Country Skiing in Breckenridge, Colorado

Sallie-Barber-Mine-Cross-Country-Skiing-in-Breckenridge-Colorado.jpg

A short drive from our house is a classic winter destination activity, the Sallie Barber Mine: Cross Country Skiing in Breckenridge, Colorado is the subject of my first video using my new GoPro camera. I've studied the helmet cams for years, and this camera has evolved to include an app, a touchscreen, and a plethora of accessories to customize where and how you use the camera. I look forward to creating videos about other family outings and activities, as well as Colorado wedding venues, ceremony and location spots that you just can't visualize from a magazine, or even still images on a website.

 

This is our efforts evolving, and that means showing what it means to live the Breck life and have fun and go skiing. We love the downhill experience at the Breckenridge Ski Resort, or even the groomed trails of the Breckenridge Nordic Center, but there's nothing like driving 5 minutes up the road to a backcountry ski on an old mining road by the dredge piles in French Gulch.

And if we know this much about trails, just imagine how much we know about the different venues, homes and locations for weddings up here. It's not easy, and it all takes time. Please contact us to learn how we can help best.

Kristin + Neil at the Sugarbush Resort in Vermont [Engagement]

Kristin and Neil at the Sugarbush Resort in Vermont, an engagement shoot from Light + Color Wedding and Event Photography, is today's share. Why Sugarbush and not Summit County? Well, because I thought about it, and I realized that a lot of couples travel around the world to get married in the Breckenridge area, so I've decided to share photos from other mountain areas.

While I am definitely biased and think the Rocky Mountains of Colorado are some of the most beautiful out there, I wanted to share some mountain love. You don't need much as far as props go when it comes to couple photography, but one useful item is the umbrella. It can shield you from wind, sun and sprinkles. Bring one or two, for sure.

If you have an engagement shoot from the mountain towns near Breck, including Copper Mountain, Dillon, Frisco, Keystone, Silverthorne, Vail or Beaver Creek, then please click the link at the bottom of the post, or click here for the submissions page.
